Story (as on goodreads) :

From matchmaker…to perfect match?

Whitney Thomason prides herself on being able to find the perfect partner for anyone, but heart surgeon Tanner Locke is a real challenge! He wants to settle down, but he’s adamant there’ll be no falling in love…

When Whitney’s candidate falls through it’s up to her to be the girlfriend Tanner needs for his business weekend getaway, but two days in close proximity prove torturous. They know giving in to temptation is a bad idea but desire is more powerful than reason…

Review :

Well, how can one say no to a hot doctor and steamy romance? 😉

Whitney is just a simple matchmaker, and all she wants is to help people find true love in their life partners. So when Tanner Locke, the hottest guy back from her college days at Berkeley pops up from nowhere, looking for her help to find him his perfect match, she’s flabbergasted.
What shocks her even more is that he isn’t looking for love. Only a mutual companionship is what he seeks.

I loved how the story flowed on swiftly and it was easy enough to delve deeper into their conversations as that reflected their thoughts and emotions.

I picked this up for my Valentine’s book date, and well, wasn’t disappointed! It blended quite well with the mood. The writing style is clean, lucid and on point. Written in third person, we were let on in the characters’ minds with quite ease. The romance blooming between Tanner and Whitney was electric and steamy, if I may just add 😉
The temperature was rising in so many ways and of course, I was loving it. Though things were pretty intense, the story is quite placid and ordinary. But I must say, it has the potential of being adapted into a Hollywood film if you love the romantic comedies. Personally, I binge watch them, so I think that would be really great!

There were a lot of things to learn from this book, besides the fact that “love is everything”. Some of the incidents were quite relatable, like how we judge people based on their appearance and behaviour and keep misunderstanding them all throughout our lives and when we finally realise our mistakes, it’s just too late.

The story enveloped me with warmth and I loved that feeling. I would rate this book 4 out of 5 Stars and recommend it to all the romance lovers because this one is sure to make your hearts tingle !

I received a review copy from the author for my honest and unbiased opinion.

  1. Sounds interesting and given that I wrote (and currently trying to edit) a Matchmaker book, maybe I’ll think of adding this one to the list. Thanks for this review.
